Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I want to clean dust from tower does the blue plug on cord pull straight out? seams hard to do
Years ago, on a computer tech help site, I read a posting warning against this unless a last resort? It said that if all was well - leave it be! as moving dust from where it has settled could possibly cause a 'short-circuit' & burn out components. Also do not know which cable is "blue plug on cord"? Make sure power is off at wall. The power plug pulls straight out from computer. Other plugs have obvious screws/screw-posts. If you are going to fiddle around inside your box, best practice is to wear an anti-static wrist band attached to metal screw/frame with power OFF at wall but leads still plugged in - (this will ensure that the computer is earthed & your body static - up to 50,000volts! - will not fry any components). I hope that this helps - kind regards - 'b'ye - Bruce.

It's not a problem, just make sure you pull the cord out of the plug.
You will not get shocked - anyway.

SOURCE: very simple question
Does it look like a VGA plug? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector
If so, you'll have to back out the screws on either side to take it out. Just do it with your fingers, or if they're too tight, use a flat screwdriver to do them (some even allow use of a phillips screwdriver). Just be careful as sometimes the screws want to take the screws that they're mounted in with them (they hold the VGA port in place).
If that isn't it, where is the plug and what shape is it?
